Higher Apprenticeships

These programmes are for experienced staff working in the relevant field.

  • Broadcast Production Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship
  • Care Leadership and Management Level 5 Higher Apprenticeship

Degree Apprenticeships

On a degree apprenticeship programme you get work experience, study at university and gain professional accreditation at the same time. Your employer will cover the costs so there are no tuition fees. You can apply for a degree apprenticeship if you have A levels, a level 3 BTEC or if you are a non-graduate working in the field.

The Government has a set a target of 3 million apprenticeship starts by 2020. How does that affect you?

Benefits of hiring an apprentice

  • An apprentice will work alongside your experienced staff to gain on-the-job training and skills, just the way you want it.
  • Once trained, an apprentice will become a valuable member of the team, helping to increase productivity.
  • Trained staff are more likely to stay and progress within the business, improving morale and reducing recruitment and training costs in the long term.

An apprenticeship is a great way to bring in new staff with fresh ideas and to upskill existing staff.

In return you will be expected to

  • Employ your apprentice for a minimum of 12 months, working a minimum of 30 hours per week.
  • Pay your apprentices a wage – the London average is £190 p/w.
  • Ensure that apprentices receive suitable training either at the college and/or at the workplace.

How can we help?

  • Find candidates or train existing staff
  • Train your apprentice to a nationally recognised qualification
  • Support you through the admin.
